Police and emergency rescue crews are frantically to free victims trapped in the rubble of a collapsed apartment building in Philadelphia.
The building which was connected to a Salvation Army store at the corner of 22nd and Market streets came down at 10:45 a.m. Tuesday morning. The cause of the building collapse is unknown. But officials believe a controlled demolition at a construction site next door may have contributed to the collapse.
10 people were transported to area hospitals. No deaths have been reported. Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey told FOX 29 in Philadelphia that police are “still pulling people out.”
“We’re asking the public to stay out of the area to allow the rescue workers access,” police tweeted as crowds gathered at the site.
